NBA Draft: Pick-by-Pick Analysis

By The Sports Network June 26, 2014 at 7:43 PM

As selections are made, we'll provide pick- by-pick analysis for the entire first round of the NBA draft as it plays out Thursday night in New York.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers - Andrew Wiggins (SF, Kansas)

The Cavaliers did a great job Thursday night of keeping their cards to their chests leading up to the draft start. But the Cavs, who selected No. 1 overall for the second straight year and the third time in four years, ended up settling on Wiggins. Both Wiggins and Duke's Jabari Parker were considered for the pick. Wiggins has amazing potential and freak athleticism, and will develop to the NBA game with some time and experience. He's a star in the transition game, and pairing him with Kyrie Irving will make for an unbelievably dynamic tandem.
